Representing Victims of Securities and Investment Fraud
Securities fraud takes on many forms. Investors incur losses when companies, corporate insiders, hedge funds, private placement issuers, financial advisors and other financial professionals make false or misleading statements or fail to disclose material information. Other times, they promise unrealistic high returns or perpetrate fraud through the misuse or misappropriation of investment funds.
The attorneys at Lewitas Hyman have decades of experience dealing with securities fraud cases and have a deep understanding of how capital markets and financial service firms are intended to work to protect investors.
Unfortunately, the following types of securities fraud typically cause harm to investors, including:
- Financial advisor misconduct.
- Ponzi, pyramid and prime bank schemes.
- Issuance of false and misleading statements by public companies, hedge funds and other private issuers.
- Misstatements of corporate earnings.
- Fraudulent representations relating to investments.
- Improper use of discretion.
- Conversion and theft.
- Breach of fiduciary and other duties.
- Failure to perform due diligence.
